Research Scientist at the Australian E-Health Research Centre, CSIRO

I am a electronic engineer and software developer currently employed as a research scientist at the Australian E-Health Research Centre, CSIRO.

I work in a mobile health group and spend most days building devices and applications for speech and occupational therapists.

My current research interests include: artificial intelligence, mobile health, natural language processing for applications in autism spectrum disorder, dementia and Parkinson's disease.

My previous research has been on computational electromagnetics, computer modeling, and various computer science topics.

Previously, I was a postdoc at the University of Queensland on microwave imaging for detecting strokes in the brain.
